a year and move the detainees to the states. but it was pelosi and harry reid who said you can't use any federal funds to move guantanamo detainees to the united states and you can't use funds to buy or rehab a facility in the united states. jamie: why acquire it? >> there is overcrowding in some federal facilities. this is a well-built relatively new facility. it's been sitting dormant. i take them at their word that they want to utilize it to ease overcrowding and to bring jobs to the area. but the scepticism that some have is that the obama administration will make an end run around federal law, democrats and republicans, and try to close gitmo on the chief. jamie: there is so much overcrowding of the state prisons that the governor is releasing some prisoners locally that should potentially be behind bars, residents of illinois may argue. why not leave that opportunity or even assist the state government in acquiring it -- and there is no mention of that at this point -- may i confirm with you and take it for themselves, the feds. >> great question. one that i hope members of the med
the senate, and harry reid says this all the time. so latinos have already been decisive. they could be more decisive. you showed the numbers. if they came out to vote in more numbers. but essentially they will be a very critical part of deciding who the next president will be. and republicans have said that this next candidate, mitt romney, cannot win the white house if he can't get at least 40% of the latino vote. he's nowhere near that right now, randi, so this should be a big problem for republicans. >> amy, latinos say that the democrats have done a much better job in terms of reaching out to latinos and minority voters. what, if anything, do republicans need to do to turn around that perception? is it too late? >> well, interestingly, during the conventions, president obama, he outspent mitt romney 7-1, but the spending that mitt romney did do during his convention was mostly in hispanic media. so you see the romney campaign is very aggressively trying to court and reach out to hispanic voters. but let me get to this 40% number that maria threw out there. in fact, george bush did win i
that you and nancy pelosi and harry reid thoughts was the best answer and drove it through. >> gretchen: was that enough to convince independents that governor mitt romney has a very different plan on health care? let's ask senior advisor with the romney campaign, ed gillespie. good morning to you. >> good morning. good to be with you. >> gretchen: i thought this was so interesting because a lot of people have thought that the romney plan in massachusetts and the obama plan for the nation are exactly the same. did this point out the differences? >> governor romney was clear in the differences last night. it begins with the fact that massachusetts is a state. not the federal government. second, governor romney, when they worked in a bipartisan manner to get it done, they did not raise taxes on the people of massachusetts. they did not impose a government board to make decisions about what health care people can get. they did not raid medicare to the tune of $716 billion to pay for it. lot of critical differences between what governor romney did for massachusetts and what president obama
people? here for a fair and balanced debate is former communications advisor to harry reid and republican strategist michelle seleski, thank you for being here. >> good to be here. >> alisyn: penny, start with you. how can the administration justify the misleading information they put out for the first two weeks about this benghazi attack? >> the information they put out there is based on the best intelligence they had at the time. often times in the initial assessment it's often imprecise and incomplete. and as they've learned that they've shared with the congress and american public. as it has evolved, as the intelligence director has says we will let people know, but this has been evolving thing and often times unclear as my former boss says in the fog of battle. we're learning as we're given. >> alisyn: michelle, do you agree it's the fog of war that led people leak jay carney and susan rice to say it's as the result of a ridiculous movie trailer? >> if this wasn't for political reasons it's out of sheer incompetence. and to cover up solyndra and fast and furious, misinformation for p
